Education this age group is especially important since it is estimated that nearly 50% of children are bitten before age 12.  In Beaufort County, 73 dog bites were reported by the end of Aug. of this year.  Many bites are not reported.  60% of most bites are to children.

According to Corriveau, between the years of 2006 to 2010, his company alone had paid 17,476 claims amounting to a total payment of more than $427 million.
